"Damn this pain!"
"Dear Lord! Can someone turn off the sun?"
"I wish I could just turn this sweating off somehow."

Most of us have, at some point in our lives, have said one or more of these things. Most of us have gotten hurt so bad that we wished for some way to turn off the pain. And we have. By medication, cursing, shouting.. the means are irrelevant. Most of us hate being in pain. We always wonder if "everything has a reason"; where pain fits in the grand scheme of things. The obvious reason would be to appreciate not being in pain. Yeah well, this reason applies to almost anything that humans don't like. Why do we need pain, seriously?

This is one question, I had never thought of, ever. I didn't care for pain much and that was that. Pain is bad. period. We don't need pain and mosquitoes.

And then I saw a medical drama I watch every week (Not quite as dramatic as one would have hoped for, but anyway). And it seriously forced me to think. The results?

We need pain. We need it to survive. We might even call ourselves lucky we feel pain.

Instead of going into too much detail regarding the whys and the hows, I'll let the readers decide for themselves.
